That was back in the 1970s, and it wasnt until much later, when once again living in the U.S., I tried making a Guatemalan dish, Platanos en Mole (Plantains in Mole Sauce), using the cassia available. The dish just tasted wrong. I couldnt understand it. I had made this dish many times in Guatemala. I had a lot more cooking and baking skill by this time. What was wrong? I started checking into spices in general, with an eye to those things I knew were different, and discovered that we in the U.S. are being marketed a completely different product.
The Dower Chest, better known as a Hope Chest or Blanket Chest in present time, is referred to by the Pennsylvania Dutch as Ausschteier Kischt. This piece of furniture is the most cherished and most representative of the Germanic Immigrants who came to live in Pennsylvania during the late 17th, 18th and 19th Centuries.Young girls between the ages of eight to ten were given Hope Chests inscribed with their names and usually the date of presentation. This storage chest was filled with household items that the girl made, was given or purchased in anticipation of her future marriage. On her wedding day, this completely filled Hope Chest was proudly placed in the "Wedding Wagon" to be taken to her new home. Items would have included blankets, bed linens, baby clothes, quilts and some family heirlooms.
There is one potential drawback to lingerie chests. Because of their narrow and trim design, these space saver chests are not suitable storage spaces for larger items, including bulky garments and the like. However, these space saving chests earn their moniker because these units are suited perfectly to store lighter garments and smaller items ... like lingerie. Of course, lingerie can cost a good deal of money. In the end, lingerie chests are idyllic when it comes to protecting the investment you have made in your most personal garment choices.
The world is not perfect. Youre not perfect. Your family, friends, colleagues, acquaintances, and strangers are not perfect. Things may not go according to plan. People may disappoint you. So, as the Latin Proverb says, "if the wind will not serve, take to the oars". In the compartment marked TROUBLESHOOT youll want to include tools to deal with things like depression, disappointments, perception distortions, poor me attitudes, negativity, anger, grief, nightmares, and unsolvable problems.
